The variety of new devices capable to consuming and displaying HD content has had a major impact on todays home entertainment market. These new smartphones, tablets, connected TVs, hybrid set-top boxes and game consoles, are driving the need for easy to use, cross-device content sharing solutions. To address this need Discretix and AwoX have partnered to offer a joint DTCP-IP solution.
